Notes

THIS IS THE FIXED VERSION. Please do not circulate the previous seed (shn id# 88551). I removed the gap between Space and Wharf Rat as well as the long silences at the end of Sugar Mags and OMSN. I also moved the break between disc 2 and 3 to the beginning of Space because I feel this is a more appropriate spot than the transition between Space and Wharf Rat. Finally, I cleaned up the resulting sbe's and generated new checksums.

I bought this about 15 years ago in a head shop in Burlington, VT, when I was in college there. It came complete with the typical misspelled song titles and pictures that have nothing to do with the actual show, such as shots of Jerry from the 90's, and photos of Brent who obviously wasn't yet with the band. The tracking was really screwy as well. It has absolutely no identifying information such as name of the label or date of release. However, it does sound pretty darn good, in my opinion.

All I did was rip it, reassemble the tracks into one long .wav file with Wavmerge, and retrack it with Audacity so that the tracks made sense. I think it sounds much better than the only other source available at this time - shnid #294. I don't hear any of the EQ, compression, or noise reduction which is suspected to have been used on that source. I'm not an expert so your mileage may vary. If I knew how to do it properly I would fix the levels, which seem kind of low. Hopefully someone with the skills to do it right will remaster this and make it sound just exactly perfect - or maybe this seed will prompt someone to release an even better source for this spectacular show.

I've compared the two and as far as I can tell this has the same cuts/reel flips as shnid #294. It also sounds like one of the tracks is still missing for the entire encore, with Keith and one of the drummers AWOL.

I have been looking for a copy of this for years and I finally found it! I had it as a filler and was always curios to which show it was from. Oh yea, the rest of the show is a very solid recording, sounds grate and has a pretty fun setlist.

If you want to hear a good Red Rocks show play this one.. it's pretty tasty.

What a great Ramble On Rose! Jerry seems to be fighting the strings a bit in his solo, but his vocals! So righteous. If only I could have been there to hear him belting this out with such passion. Bobby and Donna aren't shabby either when they join in...

Matt thanks for the work on this. My first copy of this was prpbably circa 1982-83, had 4 ro 5 copies since. This is trhe best sounding source I have heard in my 25 years-plus of trading/collecting Dead. very clear, no noise reduction, greta levels, great range on the highs and lows. Thanks again.

'78 is a great sleeper year for me. I could pick several years I like better - '72-'74, '69, '70, 85, '82. The usual Suspects. But '78, for all it's standard setlists, despite seome seriously lackluster shows, there were m,any gems a;long the way. That year had to be judged on execution not set lists, and the Estimated>Otehr One>Eyes from this night is a great example of some of the truly incredible and inspired improv they pulled off that year. See the Scarlet>Fire from Cedar Falls 2/5, or Normal 4/24 ( a VERY underrated show), the Shakedown jam from 11/24, of course 10/21. Williamsburg, Pauley. Not one of their best years but nonetheless highly underrated at the same time, and a good example of why this band was so good at what they did. Even an off year had amazing moments.

This was always a favorite tape of mine. Never had the first set. The Other One>Eyes and the triple encore (esp a very tight and dense Terrapin and the best Werewolves ever) deserve special mention. This is '78 at it's finest!
